YouTube Uploads Doubled to 2GB, HD Embeds, and Linking Added

YouTube logoIf you upload videos to YouTube and feel restricted by the 1GB limit, YouTube now offers 2GB of wiggle room as well as the ability to directly link to and embed high definition video.

To share a link that points directly to the HD version of a video, tack on “&hd=1” to the end of the URL. To embed a high-def video on a website or blog, click the ‘customize’ button (located to the right of the embed box), then check ‘play in HD’. YouTube recommends embedding HD videos at 853×505 for “maximum enjoyment”. My customize field had yet to show the “play in HD” option, but the feature should roll out to all users soon.
